Chinese New Year (year of Monkey) has already started in parts of the world. A time to celebrate with family and friends. In China, people travel for days to get home, this is a big holiday.
Where ever you are, however you are celebrating, may inner joy, satisfying rewards, and good health be the core essence of the new year.
